Bible Quote 7:13 "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
7:14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
7:15 "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

7:16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
7:17 Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
7:18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.
7:19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
7:20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

7:21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
7:22 Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?'
7:23 Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
